Zoo appeals for help to save zebra

Marwell Wildlife, which owns and operates Marwell Zoo in Hampshire, is making an appeal to help save Grevy’s zebra in the wild.


The conservation charity has been working to support the endangered Grevy’s zebra in Kenya for over 20 years. This year, Kenya is once again experiencing a drought and the Grevy’s populations in the remote north are at risk and urgently need supplementary hay.


Working with the Grevy’s Zebra Trust, Marwell Wildlife is buying 500 bales of hay and transferring them on lorries across rough terrain to the remote areas that desperately need it. Other costs include paying for local scouts to store, distribute and regularly monitor the hay and its intake.
